      Over in Kenya … GREAT news!    This announcement went out to 1 million followers … perhaps his testimony will create a domino effect with many others turning to Jesus?

       

      Official at Kenyan Atheist Society Resigns After Finding Jesus

      Breitbart

      The Atheists in Kenya society (AIK) announced Saturday the secretary of the organization, Mr. Seth Mahiga, resigned from his post because “he has found Jesus Christ and is no longer interested in promoting atheism in Kenya.

      “This evening, regretfully, our Secretary Mr. Seth Mahiga made the decision to resign from his position as Secretary of our society,” the group said in a tweet. “Seth’s reason for resigning is that he has found Jesus Christ and is no longer interested in promoting atheism in Kenya.

       

      It’s a sad day for the Atheists In Kenya Society,” Harrison Mumia said in a separate tweet. “Our secretary, Seth Mahiga has resigned saying he’s found Jesus. Lol!”

      The appended “lol” at the end of the tweet drew the attention of Kenya’s former Chief Justice, Dr. Willy M. Mutunga, who sent out the following message to his one million followers:

      Mr. President. If it is of any consolation, besides your LOL, Article 32(1) of our Constitution provides: Every person has the right to freedom of conscience, religion, thought, belief and opinion. This provision is not a laughing matter
      The Nairobi-based Atheists in Kenya society “is an atheist organization, registered under the Societies Act in Kenya,” the group’s website states, adding that it the first non-religious society to be registered in the country and a member organization of Humanists International.

      More than 150 earthquakes shook the California – Mexico border, with the largest registering 5.3

      CNN

      By Dave Alsup & Hollie Silverman  June 5, 2021

      Over 150 small earthquakes have been recorded Saturday in a rural area near the Salton Sea in Southern California, with the largest having a magnitude of 5.3, a US Geological Survey seismologist told CNN.

      “There have been 152 earthquakes measuring all magnitudes,” said seismologist Paul Caruso, speaking by phone from Golden, Colorado.  Caruso said the area is not heavily populated and that it has been known to have “swarms in the past.”

      A CNN crew in Orange County said they did not feel any of the quakes.

      The earthquakes, ranging from 2.5 to 5.3 magnitude, occurred in Calipatria, just south of Salton Sea along the San Andreas Fault, the USGS map shows.
      Calipatria is about 30 miles north of the Mexican border and about 140 miles east of San Diego.

      Two 5.9 magnitude earthquakes struck in the Pacific Ocean around 89 and 98 miles west of the coastal town of Gold Beach, Oregon, after 1 a.m. PT on Friday, the USGS reported.

      At least 4 of the earthquakes ranging in magnitudes from 3.9 to 5.9 occurred in that area in the previous few hours, according to USGS

      Iran “maybe” weeks away from a nuclear weapon 

      The United States still does not know whether Iran is ready to resume compliance with its 2015 nuclear deal and if Tehran continues to violate the pact, the “breakout time” it needs to amass enough fissile material for a single nuclear weapon will shrink to weeks, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Monday.

      “It remains unclear whether Iran is willing and prepared to do what it needs to do come back into compliance,” Blinken told lawmakers.”Meanwhile, its program is galloping forward. … The longer this goes on, the more the breakout time gets down … it’s now down, by public reports, to a few months at best. And if this continues, it will get down to a matter of weeks.”

      Per Sean Osborne Eschatology Today

      May need to ‘explain once again my analysis for why I see Iran’s nuclear goose is now virtually cooked and fork ready.

      The Global Oligarchy has BIG plans. Real BIG plans. A nuclear-armed, apocalyptic-minded Shi’ite Twelver Republic of Iran completely overturns those plans.

      This is why the Globalist Elite put all of their eggs in the JCPOA basket, and why Obama sweetened the deal with $$ billions in cold, hard cash and why they went all-out to usurp by outright fraud the U.S. 2020 election and Israel’s 4th election in 2021.

      It was an all-or-nothing gambit played by the Globalists. Now they realize that the apocalyptic Twelver’s bluffed, called and raised the nuclear ante to the point that the military action Ace is the only card left in their hand.

      Game Over.

      Obadiah and the Gaza War
      by: Prophecy Watchers on May 20, 2021
      An article for Prophecy Watcher Magazine by Ken Johnson, 5-19-2021

      As I am writing this, the nation of Israel has just had its seventy-third birthday. As many of you know, recently Hamas, who is the governmental / terrorist group in Gaza, started a war with Israel by launching thousands of rockets. As of this morning, there have been over 3700 rockets fired at Israeli cities. I believe that this event could be a part of the Biblical end time prophecies. Let’s begin by looking at how the prophecies said this would start.

      The Beginning

      The prophet Obadiah wrote about the end of Edom from verse 1 to verse 14. The rest of the book is about the end times. Some scholars think this first part is referring to just the ancient Edomite empire started by Esau, Jacob’s brother. Although this does fit, the Dead Sea Scrolls teach that the major and minor prophets teach about the events that happen leading up to, and including, the millennial reign of the Messiah. Several of us who study the biblical prophecies think this first section (verses 1-14) may also refer to Mystery Babylon. But for now, let’s focus on how the nation of Israel and the Gaza strip were supposed to form. The prophecy says,

      “For the day of the LORD is near upon all the heathen: as thou hast done, it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head. For as ye have drunk upon My holy mountain, so shall all the heathen drink continually, yea, they shall drink, and they shall swallow down, and they shall be as though they had not been.” Obadiah 1:15-16 KJV

      Verses 15-16 say that the following events will begin before the start of the seven-year tribulation. It is when the Day of the Lord is near, not upon you. This is the time period ranging from the return of the nation of Israel, which was in AD 1948, to the beginning of the seven-year tribulation. During all of this time the Gentile nations (Muslim nations) have performed their rituals on the Temple Mount. This practice will stop and be like it never happened.

      “But upon mount Zion shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions. And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau for stubble, and they shall kindle in them, and devour them; and there shall not be any remaining of the house of Esau; for the LORD hath spoken it.” Obadiah 1:17-18 KJV

      Verses 17-18 say that there will be a time when Israel returns to their land. The remnant of the house of Esau would be still living in the land; today we refer to them as Palestinians. Israel will be like a fire is to kindling, which means highly successful. This is exactly what happened. In AD 1948, Israel was reborn as a nation. Within hours many Muslim nations attacked. The attacking nations told the Muslim inhabitants that they should flee until they had wiped out all the Jews, then they could return to life as normal. However, by the war’s end the Jews had won and gained even more of their ancient territory back. Those who fled were displaced. Obadiah correctly reveals the result of the 1948 war.

      “And they of the south shall possess the mount of Esau; and they of the plain the Philistines: and they shall possess the fields of Ephraim, and the fields of Samaria: and Benjamin shall possess Gilead.” Obadiah 1:19 KJV

      Look very carefully at verse 19. The state of Israel was created in the middle of the land and those who fled from there went to three places: the “mount of Esau” which is southern Jordan, the “fields of Samaria” which became known as the West Bank, and the “plain of the Philistines” which became known as the Gaza Strip. What has not happened yet is the tribe of Benjamin returns to the land of Israel and possesses ancient Gilead. The land of Gilead is currently part of north western Jordan. There are several prophecies on what will happen to the Golan Heights, Gilead, and Jordan, but for now let’s continue with Gaza. Through world pressure, Israel was talked into granting Gaza its autonomy. That proved to be a major mistake. A terrorist organization rose up in Gaza calling itself “Hamas.”

      Hamas

      The word “Hamas” means “violence” in Hebrew. Most of the time the word “Hamas” should just be translated “violence.” But there are a few Old Testament passages that speak of this “violence” being a group of people who are anti-Israel. For instance, this group seems to be headquartered in the ancient area of the Philistines. Today we call this area the Gaza Strip. Remember Samson delivered the Children of Israel from the Philistines in Judges 15. Back then the capital was Gath, today it is Gaza City.

      “Cross to Calneh and see; and from there go to the great Hamath; then go down to Gath of the Philistines. Are they better than these kingdoms, or their border than your border? You who put the evil day far away, and cause the seat of violence [Hamas] to come near” Amos 6:2-3 LITV

      Hamas arises when the Day of trouble is near. So, this is not during the seven-year tribulation but before it. They are wiped out and not even other Muslim nations object. This is probably because Hamas holds allegiance to the extremely radical Muslim nation of Iran. Most Muslim nations are afraid of what Iran might do to them. When God arises to judge Hamas, it will be a complete judgment, none of them shall remain.

      “The morning is come unto thee, O thou that dwellest in the land: the time is come, the day of trouble is near, and not the sounding again of the mountains. Now will I shortly pour out My fury upon thee, and accomplish Mine anger upon thee: and I will judge thee according to thy ways, and will recompense thee for all thine abominations. And Mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: I will recompense thee according to thy ways and thine abominations that are in the midst of thee; and ye shall know that I am the LORD that smiteth. Behold the day, behold, it is come: the morning is gone forth; the rod hath blossomed, pride hath budded.  Violence [Hamas] is risen up into a rod of wickedness: none of them shall remain, nor of their multitude, nor of any of theirs: neither shall there be wailing for them.” Ezekiel 7:7-11 KJV

      Retaking of Gaza

      That brings us to the current Gaza War. We must carefully analyze Obadiah 20 piece by piece. The prophet says,

      “And the captivity of this host of the children of Israel shall possess that of the Canaanites…”Obadiah 1:20a KJV

      The ancient land of the Canaanites was on the west coast of Israel and extended southward all the way to the Sinai Peninsula. In the beginning Hamas fired rockets without advanced guidance systems, so most of the time they did not hit their intended targets.  It was dangerous for Israel to allow this to go on, but intense political pressure prevented them from permanently stopping the attacks. Hamas is backed by an extremely radical Iran. This means that even though Muslim nations want to see Israel destroyed, because of what their religion teaches, they are content to say nothing at this time if it means Israel might end their Iranian threat. And they do. That prophecy is recorded in Jeremiah 49:34-39. Jeremiah predicts that Elam, the coast of Iran, will be destroyed by fire and the entire coast contaminated so that the people living there have to flee to other countries (sounds like the Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant located on the cost). After this event Iran becomes a godly nation.

      Presently, with the political pressure off, and Hamas obtaining missiles with more advanced guidance systems, this prophecy might be in the process of being fulfilled. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was quoted as saying that Israel will return to the ancient laws. Any nation that attacks them will be driven out of that area and that land will be annexed. Enemy land will become part of the sovereign nation of Israel. Now if an Israeli politiciandecides to give the land back to the anti-Israel Palestinians five years from now, then this whole process will start all over again and this will have been just a dress rehearsal. But since “Hamas” is mentioned by name in Scripture, I think this just might be the complete fulfillment of Obadiah’s prophecy.

      The Next War – Hezbollah in Lebanon

      What happens afterward? Obadiah continues.

      “And the captivity of this host of the children of Israel shall possess that of the Canaanites, even unto Zarephath…” Obadiah 1:20a-b KJV

      Not only does Israel permanently take the Gaza Strip, but they take control of the coast all the way up to the ancient city of Zarephath. That is where the prophet Elijah healed the widow’s son. What was Zarephath is close to the modern town of Sarafand, Lebanon. Zarephath is located about eight and a half miles south of Sidon and fourteen miles north of Tyre. Think about this for a moment. During the Millennial Reign, the northern border of Israel will be in Syria, far north of Zarephath and the current northern border of Israel is south of Zarephath. This means that this battle is truly before the Day of the Lord and in our very near future. Also notice when this takes place the Lebanese city of Sidon will still be in Lebanon, but the ancient city of Tyre will be Israeli land.

      The Negev Colonized

      Verse 20 ends by saying,

      “and the captivity of Jerusalem, which is in Sepharad, shall possess the cities of the south.” Obadiah 1:20c KJV

      This means that the Jews that were dispersed from Jerusalem to Spain (Sepharad) will return and colonize the Negev. Those who fled to Spain became known as Sephardic Jews. In AD 1492, the Sephardic Jews were given an ultimatum. Their three choices were to convert to Roman Catholicism, leave Spain, or die. Many left and some of these are now ready to return to Israel. When God grants Israel victory over their enemies and the land of Israel expands, these Jews will return and colonize the Negev just as Obadiah predicts! You can study these predictions and many others in my book Ancient Prophecies Revealed.

      Conclusion

      We will see the permanent retaking of Gaza and southern Lebanon by Israel. We are even told where the new borders will be. We will also see the Iranian threat neutralized and Iran becoming a godly country. We need to spread the word of the Biblical prophecies, the love of God, and the message of the Gospel now! When these prophecies come to pass, and skeptics remember that we told them about it in advance, many of them will come to the Lord. This also means that we should look up, for our redemption is drawing near.

      Unusual Activity at Secret Iranian Nuclear Site

      Per DEBKA.com

      6/9/21

      Satellite images run by Fox News show unusual activity at the Sanjarian site, where Iran is suspected of manufacturing “shock wave generators” – devices which would allow Iran to miniaturize a nuclear weapon.

      The site is 30km outside Tehran was first revealed in 2018 after the Mossad purloined Iran’s secret nuclear archive in a covert operation.  Now, the IAEA- frustrated by being denied access to sensitive sites – says its can’t rule anything out.

      Hmmm … looks like the Biden Administration is trying to strengthen and get more countries to get onboard with Abraham Accords.  It will probably succeed with the new Israeli government coming into power (2 state solution).  Hopefully it won’t be long now before they start announcing … “peace and safety”   :popcorn

       

      Biden administration laying groundwork for push to expand Abraham Accords

      Times of Israel

      June 10, 2021

      AP — The Biden administration is laying the groundwork for a renewed push to encourage more Arab countries to sign accords with Israel and working to strengthen existing deals after last month’s devastating war in the Gaza Strip interrupted those diplomatic efforts.

      The embrace of the so-called Abraham Accords is a rare carryover of a signature Trump administration policy by President Joe Biden and other Democrats.

      The Trump administration put US clout and incentives into landing the country-by-country pacts by four Arab states last year, easing enmity and isolation for the Jewish state in the Middle East that had dated back to Israel’s 1948 founding. The Biden administration saw significant prospects of several other Arab governments signing accords soothing and normalizing relations with Israel. US officials have declined to publicly identify the countries they regard as promising prospects.

      The Biden administration is considering appointing a former US ambassador to Israel, Dan Shapiro, to a Mideast role that would marshal and potentially expand the country-by-country accords between Israel and Mideast governments.

      Two people familiar with the matter confirmed Shapiro was being considered for the job, as first reported by The Washington Post. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to comment publicly.

      US officials also are working to encourage more business, education and other ties among the four Arab states and Israel. They hope visible success there will also promote the bilateral accords in the region, at the same time the US works to advance resolution of the Israel-Palestinian conflict.

      Last year, the United Arab Emirates became the first Arab country in over two decades to establish ties with Israel, after Egypt and Jordan in 1979 and 1994, respectively. It was a move that bypassed the Palestinians, who saw it as betrayal.

      The Abraham Accords include a general declaration of support for peaceful relations in the Middle East among Jews, Muslims and Christians, all followers of religions linked to the patriarch Abraham. The Trump administration saw the accords partly as paving a path toward full ties with Israel, including in security and intelligence cooperation to counter common rivals, such as Iran.

      The deals former President Donald Trump struck were “an important achievement, one that not only we support, but one we’d like to build on,” US Secretary of State Antony Blinken told the House Foreign Affairs Committee this week.

      In addition, “we’re looking at countries that may want to join in and, and take part and begin to normalize their own relations with Israel. That, too, has been very much part of conversations I’ve had with, with several of my counterparts,” Blinken added.

      Potatoes for McDonald’s french fries. Carrots for the world’s largest producer. Onions at the grocery store.

      These are just a few of the numerous crops growing across America on the veritable agricultural empire belonging to Bill and Melinda Gates, who, with more than 269,000 acres to their name, are the biggest owners of farmland in the country. They’ve got so much of it, you can see one of their Washington farms from space.

      The couple, who are now in the midst of a divorce, which will include dividing their mammoth fortune, business, and philanthropic endeavours, own land in at least 18 states, purchased through a series of at least 22 different limited liability shell companies.

      Macron tells US Jewish advocacy group that Gaza fighting demonstrated need to boost negotiations

      French president says Iran must show responsible behavior in Middle East
      LONDON: France is willing to contribute to efforts towards lasting peace between Israel and Palestinians, Emmanuel Macron told a US-based Jewish advocacy group on Wednesday.

      The French president was addressing the American Jewish Committee (AJC) Virtual Global Forum just weeks after an 11-day Israeli bombing campaign of Gaza killed hundreds of Palestinians including 66 children. Rockets fired from Gaza killed 12 Israelis.

      During the fighting last month, Macron spoke to both the Israeli and Palestinian leaders and said he worked with Egypt and Jordan on the ceasefire.

      Macron told the AJC event that the Gaza fighting “demonstrate the necessity for a decisive boost to the negotiations” to achieve lasting Israeli-Palestinian peace.

      “We know the parameters to reach a two-state solution, and France stands willing to contribute, while respecting the legitimate aspirations of each party.”

      However he also backed Israel’s “right to defend itself,” highlighting “France’s profound attachment to Israel’s security since its creation.”

      On Iran, Macron said there was no alternative other than a negotiated solution to restoring a deal restricting Iran’s nuclear  program.

      But he said: “Iran must show evidence of their responsibility in the region.”

      France, he added, had been proposing since 2018 that Iran’s missile program and destabilizing activities across the Middle East should be factored in to any resurrection of the nuclear deal.

      Macron also said he wanted to remind the Jewish community of his “unwavering commitment” to combat antisemitism.

      2 Iranian warships cruising the Atlantic, Iran confirms – suspected weapons shipment to Venezuela

      American Military News

      On Thursday, an Iranian official announced two Iranian warships have entered the Atlantic Ocean, confirming reports last month that the ships were bound for the open waters.

      In comments reported by the Iranian state-run Press TV, Iranian Rear Adml. Habibollah Sayyari, Deputy Chief of Army for Coordination, said Iran’s Makran cargo ship and the domestically-built Sahand destroyer, have entered the Atlantic Ocean.

      Sayyari did not confirm the exact destination of the two Iranian military vessels in his Thursday remarks, but said they are carrying out the Iranian Navy’s “longest maritime mission toward the North Atlantic Ocean.”

      The Iranian admiral said, “We consider our presence in international waters an inalienable strategic right of the Islamic Republic of Iran Navy and we will continue on this path with strength.”

      On Thursday, Politico reported President Joe Biden’s administration are urging both Venezuela and Cuba to turn away the two Iranian military vessels if the ships approach their ports.

      Addressing the weapons photographed aboard the Makran, a senior administration official told Politico, “The delivery of such weapons would be a provocative act and understood as a threat to our partners in the Western Hemisphere” adding, “We would reserve the right to take appropriate measures in coordination with our partners to deter the transit or delivery of such weapons.”

      The potential delivery of Iranian weapons to Venezuela comes as the Biden administration has been meeting indirectly with Iran for weeks in an effort to revive the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), otherwise known as the Iran nuclear deal. The U.S. delegation has been seeking to get Iran to return to compliance with the agreement, while Iran has been calling for an end to U.S. sanctions that have been imposed on the country after President Donald Trump withdrew the U.S. from the deal in 2018.

      Russia to give Iran advanced satellite that could track IDF bases – reportThe plan would deliver a Russian-made Kanopus-V satellite equipped with a high-resolution camera which could be launched from Russia within months, the Post said.

      By REUTERS, Jerusalem Post Staff


      Russia is preparing to provide Iran with an advanced satellite that would enable it to track potential military targets across the Middle East, the Washington Post reported on Thursday.

      The satellite is projected to have the ability to track long-range targets, including IDF bases, as well as oil refineries throughout the Persian Gulf and Iraqi bases for US troops.

      The plan would deliver a Russian-made Kanopus-V satellite equipped with a high-resolution camera which could be launched from Russia within months, the Post said.

      The report was published days before US President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin meet in Geneva and as Iran and the United States are engaged in indirect talks on reviving a 2015 nuclear deal designed to put curbs on Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for easing economic sanctions.

      The satellite would allow “continuous monitoring of facilities ranging from Persian Gulf oil refineries and Israeli military bases to Iraqi barracks that house US troops,” said the paper, which cited three unnamed sources – a current and a former US official and a senior Middle Eastern government official briefed on the sale.

      While the Kanopus-V is marketed for civilian use, leaders of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps have made several trips to Russia since 2018 to help negotiate the agreement, the Post said.

      Russian experts traveled to Iran this spring to help train crews who would operate the satellite from a newly built facility near Karaj west of Tehran, it added.

      The satellite would feature Russian hardware, the Post said, “including a camera with a resolution of 1.2 meters — a significant improvement over Iran’s current capabilities, though still far short of the quality achieved by US spy satellites.”

      The Revolutionary Guards said in April 2020 that they had successfully launched the country’s first military satellite into orbit, prompting then-US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to call for Tehran to be held accountable because he believed the action defied a UN Security Council resolution.

      Turkey activates military intervention pact with Palestinians
      Jun 14, 2021 @ 16:23 Mediterranean, military pact, Turkey-Libya, Turkey-Palestinians

      Ankara has acted to invoke the 2018 security pact that President Tayyip Erdogan signed with Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas – on the same lines as Turkey’s intervention in the Libyan conflict. This step, taken on the quiet, was approved by the National Security Council in Ankara last Wednesday, June 9 and published in Turkey’s Official Gazette the next day.

      The accord provides for Turkey’s “Gendarmerie and Coast Guard Academy” to train Palestinian security forces: “Short- and long-term projects would be implemented to increase the capabilities of Palestinian law enforcement forces by providing training, consultation and technical assistance.” Also included is an intelligence-sharing clause between Turkey and the Palestinian Authority.
      The accord goes on to cover another highly sensitive issue: It attaches the Palestinians to the internationally condemned Turkish-Libyan agreement which aimed to illicitly partition eastern Mediterranean waters between the two signatories. This deal was designed as a grab by Ankara and Tripoli of full control of those waters and their energy deposits. Making the Palestinians partners of this “accord” aimed at buttressing their claim to the coastal waters from the Gaza Strip and further north with a view to ousting Israel from its offshore gas and oil projects.

      DEBKAfile’s military sources, reporting this, note that Ankara’s deal with Tripoli provided the embattled Government of National Unity with military support in the form of advisers, artillery, ammunition and both armed and surveillance drones. This alliance remains active. On Saturday, June 12, Turkey’s defense minister Hulusi Akar, and Chief of Staff Gen. Mohammad Ali Haddad paid a visit to Tripoli. The two-prong Turkish thrust into the Palestinian arena as well as Libya targets Israel and also Egypt, our sources report, and calls for a fast Israeli response.

      LIGHTS OUT: Cyber strike against America’s power grid and energy infrastructure seeks to take down the nation and sow chaos so that bad actors can cover their tracks

      NaturalNews.com

      By Mike Adams
      Wednesday, June 16, 2021

      We now have intel from multiple sources, both public and private, that indicate a large-scale cyber warfare strike against America’s infrastructure will be attempted soon, possibly carried out by both the communist Chinese (for their own strategic reasons) but also potentially aided by the U.S. deep state that seeks to sow chaos in the aftermath of Arizona ballot audit results being released (estimated to occur in late July).

       

      We are issuing this public alert with the intention of encouraging people to prepare for the possibility of extended disruptions in the power grid, fuel deliveries and even natural gas supplies. This is not a warning coming from left field, either: The last several weeks have already seen devastating cyber warfare attacks on the Colonial Pipeline, causing widespread gas shortages across the southeastern U.S. Another cyber attack targeted the food supply with hacks of JBS, one of the largest meat suppliers in the U.S.

      Additional breaches have taken place in the transportation and national security sectors, with even the Associated Press now admitting to the shocking level of ineptitude when it comes to cyber defenses across the United States. In an article entitled, “Critical entities targeted in suspected Chinese cyber spying,” the AP writes:

      A cyberespionage campaign blamed on China was more sweeping than previously known, with suspected state-backed hackers exploiting a device meant to boost internet security to penetrate the computers of critical U.S. entities.

      The Associated Press has learned that the hackers targeted telecommunications giant Verizon and the country’s largest water agency. News broke earlier this month that the New York City subway system, the country’s largest, was also breached.

      Security researchers say dozens of other high-value entities that have not yet been named were also targeted as part of the breach of Pulse Secure, which is used by many companies and governments for secure remote access to their networks.

      The Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency, or CISA, issued an April alert about the Pulse hack saying it was aware of “compromises affecting a number of U.S. government agencies, critical infrastructure entities, and other private sector organizations.”

      The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, which provides water to 19 million people and operates some of the largest treatment plants in the world, said it found a compromised Pulse Secure appliance after CISA issued its alert in April.

      Mandiant said it found signs of data extraction from some of the targets. The company and BAE have identified targets of the hacking campaign in several fields, including financial, technology and defense firms, as well as municipal governments. Some targets were in Europe, but most in the U.S.

      The next cyber attack is being put in place right now and will target the power grid and energy infrastructure.  In my analysis, China is desperate to take down America before the Arizona ballot audit exposes the total fraud of the 2020 election. Once the truth comes out from Arizona, it will set into motion a series of events that could reverse the fraudulent election theft by Democrats and remove Biden (China’s mind-numbed puppet) from office.

      The restoration of the Trump presidency would be devastating to China, because Trump would defend America and use the national security apparatus to target China, rather than what Biden and Garland are doing now, which is turning the government against the American people.

      China also knows that if America isn’t brought to its knees soon, investigations into the origins of covid-19 will sooner or later reach the irrefutable conclusion that China built the bioweapon with PLA military oversight, using U.S. intellectual property (Chapel Hill) and U.S. taxpayer dollars (Fauci, the NIH, Pentagon funding, etc.).

      Because the U.S. deep state conspired with China to build a release a biological weapon, these “black hat” elements of the U.S. military and intelligence apparatus share China’s desire to plunge the USA into chaos in order to cover up their own crimes.

      Thus, we have arrived at a bizarre, dangerous converge of motivations where both America’s foreign enemies and America’s own deep state traitors both want to see America’s power grid taken down, plunging the nation into chaos and mass death. Arguably, globalist central bankers also want a similar collapse to take place in order to roll out their nefarious “global reset” plans.

      Watch for a massive false flag event to be blamed on QANON and militia members, but actually rolled out by the FBI, deep state and communist China.  The most likely rendition of all this will likely be a large-scale false flag event that takes down the power grid and can be blamed on QANON followers, veterans, militia members or MAGA-adjacent individuals (i.e. Trump supporter or anyone who loves America).

      As we now know, thanks to bombshell revelations broadcast last night by Tucker Carlson, the FBI ran the January 6th “Capitol siege” false flag operation, and there’s little question that the FBI is hard at work planning something much bigger — perhaps in collusion with the CCP — to take down America’s power grid and blame it on “right-wing extremists” or something similar.

      Because if America continues to function for much longer, the FBI will be exposed, the fake Biden presidency will be ended, the commie Chinese virologists will be outed as mass murderers, and the American people will take their country back from the left-wing Marxists and lunatics who are currently trying to destroy it.

It seems to be predictive programming for the return of the ancient aliens.  I was thinking if the government reveal is the 25th and we go near the same time, then will the demons wait to make themselves known until after the movie release? Please speculate on how all this will go down. I do hope we are gone before flu season hits in the fall.

        I guess I should have used “start to be dropped off by us” instead of  “start to inhabit”

        And do you mean Latter Day Saints by LDS ?

        Just because Mormons teach something like that doesn’t mean it’s not true.

        When eternity begins it might be our job to take 1 man and 1 woman, drop them off on another planet somewhere and then tell them to be fruitful and multiply.

        I don’t believe God is going to create a new universe after the great white throne judgment and that we will all just be stuck here on planet earth for all of eternity. Not that we wouldn’t enjoy it being with Jesus.

        Right now God’s main plan for this dispensation is to call out a bride of glorified saved sinners that is going to help Him rule and reign over a universe filled with sinless people someday.

        I’ll try and find Pastor Riley’s articles about it.

        In the mean time what do you think eternity will be like ?

        I’d like to know what everyone thinks eternity will be like considering it’s a lot longer than this life lol God definitely has a plan and a purpose for all of us there.

        Speculation can be fun.  Clues can be fun.  Speculation can sharpen our thinking and perceptions.  Pastor Riley enjoys speculation…

        I don’t suppose it’s totally unlikely that there were sentient beings on earth more than 6000 years ago, who were therefore not human sons of Adam and Eve.  But I believe God’s creation of Adam and Eve was uniquely God’s to perform here here on earth — not relegated to created representatives to drop them off complete with instructions to be fruitful…  But what do I know?  Everything about the future, particularly about eternity, is speculation — right?

        And we’ll have fun fun fun once our God has taken Satan away! (think beach boys tune) :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

      Israel bombs Hamas targets in Gaza after arson balloon attacks
      Fires were reported in the Sha’ar HaNegev area and throughout the Eshkol Regional Council area.

      By Jerusalem Post Staff    June 18, 2021 01:09

      The IDF attacked a number of targets in Gaza late Thursday night in response to a number of incendiary balloons that had been launched from Gaza into Israel, Palestinian media reported.

      Early Friday, rocket sirens were heard in Kfar Aza amid rising tensions between Israel and the Gaza-based terrorist organizations Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

      No injuries were reported. The IDF reportedly warned some of the Gaza residents in advance to attacking 10 Hamas targets in the Strip, N12 news reported. The strikes were carried out near Beit Lahiya and Beit Hanoun, which came in response to multiple incendiary balloons launched, causing some eight fires in Israeli communities near Gaza.

      Fires were reported in the Sha’ar HaNegev area and throughout the Eshkol Regional Council area.

      Tensions between Israel and terrorist organizations in the Gaza Strip have risen in the last three days, following a threat from Hamas to escalate attacks in response to the Jerusalem Flag March on Tuesday.

      IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Aviv Kohavi held a security briefing with top commanders and instructed them to prepare for renewed fighting with Hamas. Israel and Hamas fought for 10 days last month in what was called “Operation Guardian of the Walls.” Over 4,500 rockets were fired into Israel during that conflict.

      “The IDF will continue to destroy terrorist infrastructure throughout Gaza and it views Hamas as being responsible for the attacks that emanate from there,” the IDF said.

      A number of fires also broke out in southern Israel on Tuesday, with at least 20 fires sparked by incendiary balloons launched from Gaza. Earlier on Tuesday, Palestinian media published photos of terrorists preparing such balloons to launch towards Israel.

      The attack comes following Operation Guardian of the Walls that was conducted in mid-May.

      I don’t suppose it’s totally unlikely that there were sentient beings on earth more than 6000 years ago, who were therefore not human sons of Adam and Eve.  

      I agree.

      Gen 1:28 28And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

        That’s an interesting word “replenish”  … I wonder if it was referring to the fish, animal kingdom and birds because they were created before Adam and God used the words “be fruitful and multiply” for them as well?

        So does that mean there could have been a gap period between Genesis 1:1 and verse 2 because of the fall of satan and then God had to restore the earth again?

        1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

        2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

         

        ——————

         

        21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

        22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.

        23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

        24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.

        25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

         

        Romans 6:23 – For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

        James 1:17 – Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

         

        These verses gives me confidence those who want their fur babies to be with them in eternity will get their wish. :whistle:

         

        Matthew 7:7

        Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

        Matthew 7:11 – If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

      From Sean Osborne @ Eschatology Today

      It’s looking near certain that ultra-radical Sayyid Ebrahim Raisol-Sadati (a/k/a Ebrahim Raisi) will become the next president of the Islamic Republic of Iran within the next 24 hours. 

      He’s an Ahmadi-Nejad on steroids; ;-)   could possibly even be proclaimed as the long-awaited Al-Mahdi, and a catalyst for Jeremiah 49:34-39 fulfillment.    :popcorn

      ——————-

      IDF Chief of Staff (IDF CoS) Aviv Kochavi has conducted an assessment of the military situation in and around Israel. As a result of the assessment he has ordered increased IDF readiness for a variety of scenarios, including the resumption of hostilities in the face of continued terrorist activities in the Gaza Strip.

      Accordingly, late Thursday the IAF was ordered to strike select HAMAS targets in northern and southern Gaza.

      On Sunday, June 21st, IDF CoS Kochavi will arrive in Washington, D.C. to brief and advise U.S. military, intelligence and political leaders on how the new Israeli government intends to secure the country from the threats it faces. This will follow or be concurrent with PM Naftali Bennett’s convening of the Security Cabinet.

      The overall situation is anything but normal; expect the unexpected.

      Scary situation developing for Northern California home owners …

      Someone posted

      Water in a key California reservoir will fall so low this sumber that its hydroelectric power plant will be forced to shut down for the first time, officials said Thursday, straining the state’s already – taxed electric grid.

      An unrelenting drought and record heat, both worsened by the changing climate, have pushed the water supply at Northern California’s Lake Orville to deplete rapidly.  As a result of the “alarming levels,” officials will likely be forced to close the Edward Hyatt Power Plant for the first time since it opened in 1967. California Energy Commission spokesperson Lindsay Buckley told CNN.

      The water in Lake Orville – the state’s second largest reservoir – is pumped through underground facilities to generate electricity, which can power up to 800,000 homes when operating at full capacity.  While the water level in the reservoir is currently hovering around 700 feet above sea level, if it continues to fall at the currently projected rate to 640 feet there will not be enough water to continue operating the Hyatt Plant in two to three months, coinciding with the typical peak of the summer heat and wildfire season.

       

      Someone commented with some interesting possibilities as to why they are doing this …

      “I think the weather is being manipulated by the powers that be. Reason……..to drive people out of the West. I can think of many reasons for that, one being to resell property at a gain when they reverse the rainfall, or the other reason may be to get folks out of there so there is less resistance when the Chinese come in. The weather has been controlled since before the Vietnam War, and the military has even testified to Congress that they can do so.”

      And there is an article just 2 days ago … The Green New Deal …“California State Water Board is manufacturing a drought by draining reservoirs into the ocean under the guise of protecting wildlife.”

      Woe … looks like the stage is being set for the G/M invasion …

       

      Biden orders 8 Patriot missile batteries put in place to protect Israel from nuclear attack removed along with hundred of US troops 

      The Pentagon is pulling approximately eight Patriot antimissile batteries from countries including Iraq, Kuwait, Jordan and Saudi Arabia, according to officials. Another antimissile system known as a Terminal High Altitude Area Defense, or Thaad system, is being withdrawn from Saudi Arabia, and jet fighter squadrons assigned to the region are being reduced, those officials said. The accelerated withdrawals reflect several recent changes on the ground in the Middle East as well as Washington’s own strategic imperatives under the Biden administration.

      The Biden administration is pulling 8 batteries of THAAD anti-missile systems from the Middle East that, just coincidentally, for a ring around the nation of Israel, while at the same time attempting to rejoin Obama’s farcical Iran Nuclear Treaty that President Trump pulled America out of. What do you think is the agenda here?

      “And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.” Luke 21:20-22

      The Bible says that all the nations of the world under Antichrist will come against the nation of Israel, so it’s no wonder that when Democrats are in power there is a constant pull away from defending Israel, and a rush towards making friends with their enemies.

      From the Wall Street Journal: The Pentagon is pulling approximately eight Patriot antimissile batteries from countries including Iraq, Kuwait, Jordan and Saudi Arabia, according to officials. Another antimissile system known as a Terminal High Altitude Area Defense, or THAAD system, is being withdrawn from Saudi Arabia, and jet fighter squadrons assigned to the region are being reduced, those officials said.

      The accelerated withdrawals reflect several recent changes on the ground in the Middle East as well as Washington’s own strategic imperatives under the Biden administration. As the war in Afghanistan winds down, ending two decades of counterinsurgency as a chief driver of U.S. troop and weapons deployments, the Biden administration wants to bulk up forces directed at countering China, its chief rival in a national security landscape now defined by competition between the major powers.

      Wow, interesting scenario of how things might take place to take America down.  Thank God we have the rapture to look forward to and will be safe when all chaos  unfolds!

       

      As Vaccines are taking their toll on America, the Chinese and the Russians are planning for the final solution!

      by Dave Hodges on Friday, June 18, 2021

      I have been writing and warning what is coming to America and that day is finally arriving.

      In 2016, I first wrote that I believed that we would be attacked when our nation was embroiled in a violent internal dispute when the attack comes. The violent struggle has arrived and it is called BLM, Antifa and anything George Soros touches. At that time, I identifed 7 phases, or prongs of attack that were coming based upon US war gaming that I was told about. Plans change an in today’s world, the attack parameters have been expanded to nine phases of subjugation culminating in genocide.

      As the domestic struggle worsens, at some point, the United Nations will invoke the Kigali Principles and be in charge of the invading force. In other words, it is likely that Chinese and Russian forces will be wearing blue helmets at the time of the invasion of America. And as I written about over the past several years, previous Russian defectors have warned of this possibility.

      The Attack
      The insider sources I speak with believe that when these forces attack the United States, the attack will come as the result of a nine-pronged strategy and it will involve multiple allies under the direction of the United Nations. What I have learned is that the Naval War College has practiced each one of these scenarios, multiple times, since I first reported on these scenarios. In every case, America becomes Amerika. In other words, surrender is the only option in order to avoid complete annihilation. Here are the seven different fronts from which Russia and her allies will launch an all out attack, which will make use of limited cyber attacks upon the grid.

      My sources also believe that the Chinese and Russians obviously want to encounter a significantly weakened nation. Killshot #2 will more than likely be that agent. The deadly effects of the vaccine, will accumulate en masse, through a time-released strategy and produce horrific mass casualties. We are already seeing the first wave of these latent effects. Then and only then will the Russians and Chinese commence their attack. Further, some wonder why the Russians and Chinesewould becomeallies since they hate each other. The answer is simple, the enemy of my enemy is my friend. Finally, Biden’s impotent performance at the recent summit with Putin, has emboldened the Russian leader to not fear “sippie cup” Biden.

      Steve Quayle once told me that he is seeing unprecedented military movement in Montana. Many are reporting the same all around the country. What we are we seeing is the mobilization for war. It is now clear that China will not be attacking America on its own. Russia and China are both preparing to invade the United States. It is my belief that we will be embroiled in a violent internal dispute when the attack comes. The election audits, the border issues, states rights issues and the imposition of mandatory vaccines will provide the impetus for an internal struggle, perhaps even a civil war. In this scenario, the United Nations will invoke the Kigali Principles and be in charge of the invading force. Since I first reported on leaked information that American military leaders were expecting an attack from seven different areas/sources, more information has come to light. First, elements of the following scenarios have been repetitively practiced at the Naval War College. In each instance, America loses, badly. See the Deagel Report which tells us that in just 4 years, most Americans, 200 million to be exact, will be dead. In fact, it can be said that the best deterrent to illegal immigration would be to show potential illegal aliens the Deagle report predictions about impending mass casualties in America.

      Here is an update on newly acquired information which has added to our understanding of what is coming and our military leaders know it as many of them provided information to me with regard to a combination Russian and Chinese attack upon our country. And as I written about over the past several years, previous Russian defectors have warned of this possibility.

      Phase One: A Fifth Column Attack
      A fifth column attack is already underway in America. It is largely compromsed of Antifa and BLM. However, Sinoloas are crossing the border in force and are headed to pre-stored weapons caches and are apparently awaiting orders, along with ISIS and MS-13. These groups along with the level of their attacks, pales as what is coming to America. What is coming is an all out 5th column attack and it will be carried out by terrorists who have already gained entrance into the United States. Key assassinations and critical infrastructure sabotage will be carried out by these forces. The first casualtiy will be the grid. Random acts of violence will be perpetrated upon the American people including the slaughter of innocent Americans, the attack upon schools and malls will be common. I have often referred to this as the coming TET Offensive in which all the embedded terrorists will simultaneously attack America in dozens of locations. Many American communitieis will witness their communities rounded up and executed. That’s what communists do.

      Phase Two: The Alaskan Front
      The Alaskan Front will see the Russians attacking the lower 48 from Alaska after our most northern state is quickly overwhelmed. This will likely be preceded by an attack upon Taiwan in which American forces will drawn away from America to defend Taiwan, thus weakening the home defense. Two years ago, the Chinese, Russians and Mongolians practiced the invasion of Alaska.

      Phase Three: The Cascadian Invasion
      In close proximity to the invasion of Alaska, massive amounts of Chinese troops will pour across the Canadian border and consume the West coast. Embedded Chinese, already in America, thanks to the Chinese control of the port system, will seize key assets, similar to what Army Ranger paratroopers do prior to an advance.  Over the past several months, I have covered CANZUK and the amassing of Chinese troops in Vancouver, British Colombia. As previously covered on the CSS, America is being separated from its allies and we will stand alone against what is underway and what is coming.

      When these CHICOM troops cross the border, they will fan out and invade Idaho, Montana and seize the oil fields of Wyoming.

      Taking prisoners is not part of the plan.

      Phase Four: Red Dawn
      The Central American Front will witness a conglomeration of 30 Central and South American states (i.e. CELAC) which will combine military strike forces, backed by Russian military supplies, weapons, technology and strategy. These forces will push north through Central America and will attack America from the south. Presently, El Salvador, Colombia and Brazil are the only American allies left. Trump had previously and strategically diminished the potential sucess of such an invasion. However, this will still tie up American resources which will deplete military resources elsewhere. Remember, the ability for the United States to fight a prolonged campaign was greatly diminished because of the economic devastation caused by the planned COVID lockdowns and the economic devastation that followed!

      Phase Five: The Southeastern Invasion
      The Southeastern Front will witness an amphibious invasion following the successes of the first of three fronts in which major American military assets will be deployed away from  the Southeast to defend against the scissors attack from America’s Northwest and the Southwest. The invasion will come out of Cuba. Many thousands of Chinese forces have deployed in Cuba via Mexico. The Russian Navy and Air Force will supply support.

      Phase Six: Calexit and Other Paramilitary Assets Located In California
      In a secondary and delayed attack, CALEXIT backed Chinese forces embedded in American ports (e.g. Long Beach), who have entered the country in cargo ships, will be unleashed to attack key military bases in California. At the same time, Chinese soldiers, who are embedded in the Sierra Madras will join forces with the Latin American forces as they sweep northward through Mexico and will dramatically burst through the border and then fan out to the north, west and east.

      Phase Seven: Russian Attack from the Arctic
      Russian forces will come out of the Arctic and sweep down through Canada and will attack the U.S. through Minnesota. This will allow the Russian led forces to cut the United States in half at the Mississippi River.  The amphibious landings in the Southeast will make their way north on the Mississippi River with Naval vessels. These forces will link up with the Russians coming in from the North.

      Phase Eight: Turning Out the Lights and Starving the Northeast
      UN controlled Chinese and Russian forces would prefer to not have to enter major American forces in the Northeast. Urban conflict is the most expensive in terms of men and material. Subsequently, this region can effectively expect chemical weapons to be unleashed on the Northeast. These weapons can be completely deadly and then the effects will fade over time, thus allowing for occupation. Some analysts expect parts of the military in this region to defect and join forces with the enemy. Also, another popular option consists of the use of neutron weapons which will kill people, but leave the infrastructure intact.

      Phase Nine: Surrender and Subsequent Genocide
      The Americans in this region will be allowed to surrender. However, they will quickly be transported to FEMA camps and makeshift FEMA camps. The last three Chinese Defense Ministers have advocated for the complete extermination of all people in North America, prior to colonization.

      Trudeau and his traitors might be well-advised to pay attention because this involves the elimination of people in the newly formed state of Canuckistan. Yes, these will be the camps that Celeste and myself have frequently spoke about. All the Brown Shirt traitors (eg Biden, Harris, Pelosi, Feinstein et al) will be executed by the Chinese as they hate dishonorable traitors. 

      Conclusion
      Get out of the cities! Prepping, developing allies and having an escape route are essential with regard to what is coming.

        I hope the Rapture takes place before all of that happens. I’ve been hearing Steve Quayle talk about that scenario for over 10 years now.

        And now you have people saying we’ll all be dead from the vaccine within 2 years.

        So if that’s true all they have to do is wait and America will be for the taking without any resistance whatsoever.

        I usually get excited about gloom and doom stuff because I thought we would be out of here before tshtf and all of that.

        But if we’re not out of here soon all of that excitement is going to turn into something else.

        And I disagree with Dave’s conclusion. If your saved you want to be where The Lord wants you to be and doing what He wants you to be doing and not to worry. If we go home a different way then the Rapture then so be it. When we got saved it’s like all of our problems in eternity got solved not all of our problems down here.

        Anyway I’m just feeling bummed out about everything. It’s like super information overload.

        Everyone have a God blessed weekend and Father’s day !!!

      Israel’s top soldier must overcome Biden’s downgrade of the Iranian peril for fast action against a nuclear-armed Iran

      DEBKA
      June 19, 2021

      IDF Chief Lt. Gen. Aviv Kochavi sets out for Washington on Saturday night, June 19 with the tall order of overcoming policy differences with the Biden administration on Iran.  His mission was further complicated by Foreign Minister Yair Lapid’s assurance to Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Thursday, June 17, that Israel would not take the Americans by surprise. Defense Minister Benny Gantz went further to promise “quiet dialogue” before any Israeli action.

      These assurances were delivered to the Biden administration before they were cleared by the incoming security cabinet, which holds its first meeting on Sunday, after the IDF chief arrives in Washington. But meanwhile, the US landed a surprise in the form of a Wall Street Journal report that the US was downsizing its air defense forces in the Middle East, in view of “progress” made in the Vienna negotiating track for the US return to the 2015 nuclear accord. President Joe Biden has clearly decided that the Iranian nuclear threat has receded enough to withdraw Patriot and other air defense systems, air force squadrons and their crews from the Middle East, especially from Saudi Arabia, and the time had come to pivot towards “great power confrontation” with Russia and China.

      This policy shift was accounted for by the New York Times after the Biden-Putin summit in Geneva as a decision by Biden “to put an optimistic face on his policies.”  Most American foreign policy experts find few grounds for any such  “optimistic face,” fearing it derives more from a naïve blindness to reality rather than a coherent policy. Whereas the US as a military and economic giant can afford to gloss over reality, however, the same can’t be said for Israel. And its new leaders had no business promising not to collide with US policy by surprise actions, certainly not in the shadow of the election of an ultra-extremist, anti-West Iranian president on Friday.

      Although US sanctions were imposed on Judge Ebrahim Raisi, the new president, for mass executions of political prisoners, the Biden administration has not wavered from the diplomatic course toward a new nuclear deal with Iran. Neither has the administration been deterred by specific warnings from US intelligence and nuclear experts.

      The noted nuclear expert David Albright and Sarah Burkhard this week outlined Tehran’s staged advance towards a nuclear weapon since reaching the forbidden 60pc grade of enriched uranium. This grade “can be used directly in a nuclear explosive,” without resorting to the 90pc grade. With IR-6 high-speed centrifuges, Iran is now producing 0.126 kilos of 60pc-enriched uranium a day and will have amassed enough material for building a single nuclear in one year and three months, say these experts.

      By adding a second cluster of centrifuges to the enrichment process, Iran can cut this timeline by eight months. With four clusters, Iran will have accumulated enough 60pc uranium to build a nuke in just four months.

      Israel’s military and intelligence are painfully familiar with these figures. This awareness may account for the recent emergence along Israel’s Mediterranean coastal tights of unexplained signs with directions for escaping a tsunami. The sea along this coast is normally pretty placid with only the slightest tidal movement. But what if an Iranian commercial plane flew far out to sea opposite the Israeli shore and dropped just one nuclear bomb in the water, an option rumored to have occurred to Iran’s strategists?  Central Israel’s most densely populated heartland radiating from Tel Aviv would be mortally swamped.

      Israel’s security authorities have had to take this peril and others into account. Still, Gen. Kochavi will have his work cut out to convince the current US administration to refrain from giving Iran a fresh lease of life for its nuclear weapons program and malign activities in the region by reviving the 2015 nuclear pact and dropping sanctions. At the very least, he must explain why Israel, confronted with a direct, mortal peril, will have to retain its independence of action, even at the risk of landing surprises on American heads.

      For this stance, he will have need of full backing from Prime Minister Naftali Bennett – even if this does not square with his centrist ministers’ message to Washington.

        So I’m staying encouraged … even though we see the high watch dates flash by … one of these days … in 2021  I  strongly feel we are flying away.   :whistle:

        I thought this post from Benjamin Searle over on RITA facebook was interesting …  someone asked will the unsaved hear the trumpet and see us fly away?

        – Fair Use –

        I agree with him that only the bodies are changed in a twinkling of an eye but the flying away will be slooooow … imagine flying past all the stars and the moon and the sun and the Milky Way …  its going to be a GREAT DAY!

      Again anything listed sequentially speaks of time passing!

      Though our bodies will be changed in a nano second, just in time to meet the Lord!

      “Trump won” signs popping up everywhere. Guatemala, Switzerland, etc. Even the niece of Osama Bin Laden. Interesting…
